Can a bank report a repossession on a credit report when the local dealer co-signer was the one that repossessed the vehicle and paid the bank in full?
lets get the FACTS straight. Heres what I'm seeing. A(person) buys car from (dealer) D.D "co-signs" the loan. A defaults on loan and D repos the car. B(bank)reports repo on A CR. Simple. A had loan in default, got repoed. Repo goes on CR because it happened. WHO did the repo is immaterial. Repo doesnt go on D because D "PIF".
Can you remove a repossession off your credit report if your cosigner has a judgment on the repossession?
A credit report is a record of all transations on a reported account. In the life of a vehicle loan, many things can happen.

Answer If the primary on the contract does not pay then the lienholder comes after the co-signer for the payment. The credit of both the primary and co-signer are going to show repossession. If the lender has kept the title in its files as part of the loan process and is listed as a primary lienholder, it can sell the vehicle after the repossession.

Jason, you are just as responsible as the signor. Think about it, you knew the signor's credit wasnt good or you wouldn't have needed to co-sign. When you co-sign, you are saying "if they don't pay this loan,I WILL". Make sure the lender knows where the the whereabouts of the signor and how to get in contact with them. good luck
Yes. A cosigner can purchase as many vehicles as a lender well allow. Of course it depends on your income and credit rating as to whether or not the lenders will extend you any more credit. The loan you cosigned for is on your credit and will be taken into consideration when the lender looks at your credit to determine your elligability for a car loan.
